WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Shoppers are mapping out a plan for Black Friday shopping.
“We know where our items are located,” said Kimmy Ford and her friend Amanda Collins.
Both spent Wednesday night mapping out the Toys “R” Us store on Silas Creek Parkway.
“We know what we are going to look for and go at it.”
Many shoppers anticipate the Thanksgiving newspaper packed with advertisements.
“All hands on deck,” said Frank Clayton, production director at the Winston-Salem Journal.
For four weeks the Journal has been working on the Thanksgiving paper filled with 51 advertisements and weighing about 4 1/2 pounds.
“It’s the largest newspaper traditionally, not just here but across the nation.”
Some shoppers already know the deals they want.
“I try to get all my shopping done right here,” said Dana Sykes the first in line outside the Winston-Salem Best Buy.
Sykes and his friends arrived on Sunday.
“Once I’m done, I’m set till Christmas.”
